    Unforgettable experience, incredible landscapes. Nice staff, nice facilities, great value for money, two camel ride tours at sunset in the heart of desert. A very tasty and healthy dinners and breakfasts, especially when it's included in the price. Don't miss the visits to Berber villages. 3 Day trips with a first stop in Boulmane Hotel and we spent the 2nt night in Bivouac.. This unique experience worth all the stress of the trip.

    Everything is great, an incredible 3 day trips experience. We were accommodated in a very nice Riad, the service and attention are really excellent (if you become friends with the owners or have interesting conversations with them you can get special treatment, such as being invited to stay more days for free. The same thing with the driver who proposed other cheaper excursions. Spectacular landscapes that exceed all expectations.

    « "A wonderful excursion from Marrakech to Merzouga" We have lived three days with our guide Najib, exceptional person very kind at all times with us, giving explanations to the smallest detail. A wonderful tour and sleeping in a berber tent has been the final touch, a night in the desert was magnificent is an unforgettable experience. I believe that a good excursion with a good driver and tour guide is the ideal mix for everything to enjoy every second or your trip.»

    “Great experience” We visited Merzouga in January 2019. The trip is long, but we had a very good driver who drove safely and stopped for lunch, toilet etc. We heard from another group that they had a crazy driver so we were lucky! On our way we visited many interesting spots. The highlight was the tour to Aït Ben Haddou - the place where Gladiator, Indiana Jones and Game of thrones movies were shot. There was also a canyon on the way. Then we spent a night in a hotel. We had to share a room with two more girls and the room was freezing cold. I did not manage to sleep even though I had winter clothes on. Later when we spent a night in a tent in Sahara it was not as cold as in that hotel. Next evening finally Merzouga! The camel trip and the sky full of stars is fully worth the long trip.

    “Very nice landscape, absolutely worth it” You will see interesting landscapes ans some very nice places! Camel ride is a bit painful (1hour to get to the camp) but you can also walk and let the camel only carry your luggage) Sleeping is quite basic, but okay (hot water in the Hotel and heating/Aircondition provided) Be prepared, that it can get also very cold during the night and also in the (Atlas) mountains)! (so bring a jacket) Better bring a small/middle sized backpack , not a suitcase/trolley (for the desert trip. or at least have an additional small backpack with you) A sleeping bag is not absolutely needed (but in the desert camp , it can be a help to feel more comftable because the blankets and so on are a bit shabby) It's a long drive, but the Driver makes a stop every -2 hours, so it' s okay. Our Driver was driving safe - but : it's a mountain road , it s a long ride, there are people on the road sometimes. You will get some food/water alomost everywhere to buy.

    "A wonderful experience!" The tour was very well, the driver very friendly and also the guides who led us to the sights were very friendly and courteous, especially the Berbers in the desert, which was of course the absolute highlight. The Desert is like a picture from a book. Also in the Berber tent everything make us feeling good. Delicious food was served, nice music and a small hike to the next big dune with an amazing view into the vastness under the starry sky. I will certainly want to do this tour again, because it was wonderful.

    A memorable experience! A group of six friends, we've purchased the 3-day "Merzouga" trip and got to cross the High Atlas mountains via "Tiz n'Tichka", to visit the most famous Ksar in the Ounila valley "Ait Benhaddou", to spend the night in the Dades gorges, and to ride camels and watch the starry night amidst the "Erg Chebbi" dunes. We were picked on time at the location of our choosing and were delighted to find out we were getting a car to ourselves with our driver Hamid. He was very patient with us and stopped wherever we wished as he stopped at places we didn't know existed (although we were running short on time). We are very grateful he did. Having Hamid as our driver made our trip even more special. We've met him as driver and passengers and parted as good friends. Overall we had a very memorable experience and had great value for our money. This wasn't my first time using Traces Berberes' services and certainly won't be the last.

    What a great tour to these guys arranged for us to the Dunes of Merzouga Our driver picked us on time at our hotel, spoke perfect English, and really knew his stuff. Just besides the dunes and camel ride (a very memorable experience), we got to see te High Atlas Mountains, beautiful palm oases, Dadès, amazing gorges, and much more than I ever imagined. These guys provide first class service. You will get mor money's from these guys. Also, I would happily use these guys again.
